We invite you to participate in a workshop at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory on Tuesday 7th October 2014 to learn about the activities of the Software Engineering Support Centre (SESC) and introduce you to software engineering and collaboration practices using CCPForge.
The Software Engineering Support Centre (SESC) is a five-year EPSRC-funded programme to support good software development approaches in computaional science and to help those developing scientific software to produce better quality software. CCPForge (http://ccpforge.cse.rl.ac.uk) is a collaborative development environment, originally for the Collaborative Computational Projects (CCP) community but now it has now broaden it scope to all UK computational research and development projects and their collaborators.
The workshop is aimed at scientific researchers who’s role involves writing software and will cover:
- Using CCPForge to manage you software project
- Source code repositories and version control
- Bug and feature trackers
- Use of analysis and coverage tools
Experienced developers and those just starting their projects are equally welcome to attend. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and discuss scientific software development. By the end of the day participants will have an understanding of the SESC activity, the support it can offer and how they might help them in developing better quality software.
Information on CCPForge and the SESC programme can be found on the SESC web site.
To book a place please go the STFC Event Booking Web.
